A few basics for using the censuses
CSA# stands for the Confederate States Catalog (Confederate States of America Catalog and Handbook of Stamps and Postal History) number and Scott# for the Scott Catalogue number.
The censuses are listed alphabetically.
Some of the larger censuses are bookmarked for ease of use. When you open a census look on the left side of the screen for the bookmarks. If the census is bookmarked just click on the section you want to view.
If you have a census you would like to post or a correction/addition to report on an existing census contact Frank Crown
